Rising Above the Challenge

2019 Community Partnership Award Dinner (l–r): Thomas Gilliam, Chairman and CEO, Mutual of America Foundation; Kay Buck, CEO, Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking (Cast); LaDoverick Huggins, Senior VP, Special Markets, Mutual of America Financial Group; John R. Greed, Chairman, President and CEO, Mutual of America Financial Group.

Each year, the Community Partnership Award honors outstanding nonprofit organizations, and their partners from the public and private sectors, that are creating innovative ways to serve the needs of our country’s most underserved communities.

As was the case in 2020, this year’s award-winning organizations navigated unprecedented challenges to adapt their programs to serve the social, emotional and physical needs of their communities amid the ongoing impact of COVID-19. In doing so, and while addressing pressing issues such as substance abuse, racial inequality and mental health, they joined a growing list of Community Partnership Award winners that are making the dream of healthier, more equitable communities for everyone to enjoy a reality.

With more than 1.5 million nonprofits in the United States, the organizations honored with the Community Partnership Award represent only a sliver of all the hard work being done in service of the greater good. As we recognize five nonprofit programs this year, we are inspired by and deeply admire the compassionate efforts of all who give back to their communities.

The Mutual of America Community Partnership Award has sought not only to recognize outstanding partnerships for 26 years, but also to encourage the spirit of innovation when creating unique and effective solutions to help those most in need.”
